The Pregnancy Cookbookby Hope Ricciotti, Vincent Connelly
In The Pregnancy Cookbook, obstetrician Hope Ricciotti combines her hands-on experience from her practice with insight from her own pregnancy to give practical advice on how to eat for two during pregnancy. She covers the latest information concerning vitamins, iron, folic acid, and calcium, while giving tips on exercising, minimizing morning sickness, and managing fatigue. Organized by trimester, The Pregnancy Cookbook discusses your body's dietary needs as your pregnancy progresses.
Dr. Ricciotti's husband, chef Vincent Connelly, has worked with her to create special recipes that provide all the nutrients needed during pregnancy, basing them on a healthy, low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet. His delicious recipes are easy to prepare and specially suited to a pregnant woman's changed palate. The Pregnancy Cookbook includes chapters on nutrition when planning a pregnancy, as well as advice and recipes for the nursing mother. A separate section on desserts anticipates a pregnant woman's craving for sweets with recipes for delectable cookies and snacks.
